Style A Beatiful bed
A good pillow mix always draws me in, be it for the fabrics or patterns used or the way the pillows were arranged. Almost unconsciously, your eye may view a mix as a good match, which in returns makes the look of a bed more appealing. This is why, we're usually drawn to all white bedding, where the colors and textures come from either the throw blanket at the foot of the bed, a coverlet / quilt and most definitely from the throw pillow selections and arrangement. That's what we're going to show you today - a few ideas for styling your bed beautifully every single time. Yesterday we shared "How To Make A Bed" a great supportive post to this one.
Styling A Bed With Pillows
First, let's share a very useful tip: Your throw pillow inserts should ideally be 2 sizes larger than the actual pillow cover so that you get a fuller, plumper look to your pillows. This alone seriously elevates the whole mix to a very beautiful scene, so keep it in mind :)
There are many different ways of styling your bed so that it looks great. We are quite minimalists around here, and really prefer a clean, no fuss look to a bed vignette. This means, stacked sleeping pillows and shams towards the back and three relatively big throw pillows in front. That's it!
Option 1 - 2 26" x 26" pillows and 1 - 24 x 24" pillow
Option 2 - 2 24" x 24" pillows, 1 22" x 22" pillow and 1 12" x 24" pillow
Option 3 - 2 26" x 26" pillows and 1 12" x 24" pillow
If you want a different, more customized result, we encourage you to have your pillow covers custom made to the size you want. Consider sizes such as
- 24" x 36" for a dramatic effect
- 12" x 36"
